Osprey Grounded

The U.S. Marine Corps has grounded all of its tilt-rotor Osprey aircraft today following a crash in North Carolina that took the lives of four Marines last night. The Pentagon announced today that Defense Secretary William Cohen will appoint a panel of experts to review the entire 40-billion-dollar Osprey program. A crash of an Osprey in April claimed 19 lives. NPR's Steve Inskeep reports.
